The ICO, or initial token offerings, will be offered to institutional or private investors in the form of KCOIN, KinerjaPay’s own proprietary virtual currency. This move makes KinerjaPay to be the first Indonesian company to have an ownership in an international exchange.

Puerto Rico’s based Blockchain Industries, Inc. (OTCBB: OMGT), in partnership with Fintech Global Consultants, will be guiding KinerjaPay in their transition from an electronic payment platform to a token payment platform.

KCOIN  is currently being traded among users on KinerjaPay’s platform for activities related to gamefication, coin trading, online shopping, and multilevel marketing activities. With the ICO, KCOIN will be used as KinerjaPay’s crypto-currency on one of the largest crypto-currency exchanges in Asia.
Through their long-term partnership, Blockchain Industries and Fintech Global Consultants offer ICO consulting services worldwide. They have signed an agreement with KinerjaPay to build and launch their own crypto-currency exchange to trade KCOIN and alt coins.
So far, trading of virtual currencies has not been regulated in Indonesia, but possible regulation of exchanges for them was something that the central bank “continues to look into”.
KinerjaPay will further extend its reach into e-commerce in the international market with the addition of multiple supplementary platforms, such as KryptoMall and KryptoGames, to its collection of crypto-based platforms.
In August 2017, KinerjaPay expands its digital e-commerce platform with the launch of KinerjaGames. The Company has entered a long-term License Agreement with Ace Legends Pte. Ltd (“ACE”), a Singapore-based game developer.
ACE was established in 2013 as a small independent development studio, and registered as a Singapore entity in 2016. The company has two primary divisions; its Game Development Studio and Art Outsourcing Studio, and has more than 300,000 user registrations.
ACE publishes several successful online games, including, Royale Cards, and Battle Hound, and has a number titles in the pipeline, including Dukun, Perkedel, which will be released this year.
Under the terms of the Agreement, in exchange for a $100,000 investment, KPAY will become the exclusive, world-wide Game Publisher License for ACE games and will host all the games currently published by ACE on its own KinerjaGames platform.
To that end, the Company will integrate the source codes into the existing platform enabling users to enjoy more benefits, such as point rewards and KCoin rewards, by participating in the games. KinerjaPay will also provide R&D resources to help expedite the growth of ACE’s Game Development Studio.
